Book Description:

A brand-new guide to postgraduate study from the team behind the hugely successful Guardian University Guide.

From the Back Cover:

If you're thinking of applying to do a second degree, a PhD or an MBA, chances are you already know quite a bit about the subject you want to study. But what about the other big questions, such as how to choose the right course, where to find the funds and what to expect from life as a postgraduate student?

The Guardian has developed this brand-new guide to postgraduate study to help you make those all-important decisions. It includes:

- Detailed overviews of the different types of courses available, from distance learning and part-time master's degrees to three-year PhDs

- Advice and information on funding, from career development loans to research grants

- Profiles of more than 160 UK universities and higher education colleges, which include information about courses offered, fees, facilities and more

- Unique Guardian comparison tables plus the results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise to help you compare institutions by subject

Whether you are following straight on from your first degree or returning to academic life after a gap, The Guardian Postgraduate Guide will set you on the right track.
